I just wanted to share with you what I did this year to decorate my front door for the season.
I wanted something different than a wreath this year so I unearthed my old skates from the basement. Which by the way, has moved to many places throughout my life since I have had them as a kid. I remember skating on frozen ponds in the cold cold winters of Wisconsin. my brothers and I would clear off the snow with snow shovels and then we would skate until our toes were numb and our ankles soar. They would play hockey while I would pretend I could skate like Dorothy Hamill.
Sigh----I just love remembering happy times, don't you?
Anyway, I think my skates look pretty darn good on my aqua door nestled in a bed of greens.
Now, every time I come home, I see my skates and I smile!
(I'm not sure what I'll do if I get the urge to skate this winter:)
As you open the front door and step inside my entry you will find my latest creative endeavor. Last week I took a break from making Posie Pockets for a couple hours and whipped up this wreath that I have been wanting to do for a while. I saw a photo in the Pottery Barn catalogue as well as a couple photos in a past Somerset Life publication. I was truly inspired. What a great use of beautiful aged pages from an old book.
I made a ring out of cardboard, then, simply rolled pages and glued them onto the base with hot glue. I did that until it was full to my liking. I then added all the fun little details such as, small doilies, buttons, sheet music, seam binding, a sparkly bauble, vintage French post cards and Christmas cards. Voila! Door---decorated---done!
I have other decorations to share in the next week---everything is done! (except for the new stockings I want to stitch)
Wish my shopping was!
Wishing you all a beautiful weekend.
